    Hello,

    I want to get new console, and I do not know which one is better, PS3 SSlim, or XBox360.

    I read many reviews for both of them.
    PS3 sslim has a problem in the noise during rotating the DVD.
    Some reviewers say that Xbox360 do not support 1080p, even though I read in some places that it does support the 1080p natively.

    I want the console basically for fifa2014 and I have a Full HD TV.

    Any recommendation?

    The one which has the most games you want.
    The one that your friends play on
    The one which has the controller you prefer.

    The difference between them in FIFA2014 will be barely noticeable.

    @Armoured_Bear
    thanks for the reply.
    What about the noisy PS3 SSlim ?
    IS that true ?
    After seeing this video "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SV0np5bN_ts", i am a little bit leaning to 360.

    If I could go back and do it all again, I'd go PS3 this time. To avoid the annual Xbox live Gold charge.

    If you're wanting to play FIFA online then PS3 is a no brainer, online play is free on the PS3.

    Due to PS Plus I'd choose the PS3 without hesitation. Or if that doesn't interest you, then free online play. Plus a BluRay player.

    The drive is noisy-ish on the Super Slim, but for digital content it's very quiet.

    The 360 does allow complete disc installs; mine is barely audible when running a game.

    My PS3's laser head sounds an old printer when it's seeking data. If you're only looking to play FIFA (which is a game that typically has a lot of data seeking because of the ingame commentary and lack of install) the PS3 will be the louder of the two by some margin. And it's an intermittent stuttering, which makes it even more noticeable.

    If I were in your situation, I'd go with the 360, but I do think the PS3 has a better catalogue of exclusives, online is only marginally inferior to Xbox Live but it's free, and PS+ is some of the best value in gaming.

    I'd say at this point, so late in the generation, the PS3 is probably the one to go for thanks to the Blu Ray player and PS+.

    That noisy disc drive thing helped talk me out of it. I was sorely tempted to get a PS3 bundle with GTAV, The Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls with my stash of next-gen-trade-credit from ditching 360.

    Pros were:
    best value ever with those games
    I need a blu ray player

    Cons were:
    Was deliberately trying to have a break from games
    PS3ss is a very unappealing, cheap and nasty design
    I remember that I dislike the controller a great deal

    I think if the PS3ss wasn't so nasty - I had a look over one of their second hand ones in the shop - I probably would have got it despite the bad controllers.

    Yes, you always look at the console when you are playing games.

    ... if only they weren't so HIDEOUS!

    360 was may main console this generation but for me the only choice at this stage of the console life would be the PS3.

    I love my Xbox, but if I was buying a console today, it would be the PS3. PS+ and The Last Of Us make it a no brainer.

    It is when it's on the desk next to the monitor.

    At the store they advised me not to stand it vertically because the flimsy drive cover can slide open and the disc rocket out. I wasn't too worried that might happen, but it definitely is a flimsy and ugly piece of shit, a huge step down from the previous two models.

    I've... never had that happen in the 6 months I've had the console. Sounds like bull crap to me.

    @dominalien I think you're right. We nees to bait the fanboy, lure him out.

    My brother has a super slim and stands it vertically, never once a problem with it. It gets sad when fanboys call it ugly though.

    Never have I heard such horseshit!

    ... got the azurite blue PlayStation 3 myself, and whilst not quite as 'premium' as the model before, it looks nicer than the standard piano black one. There's a scarlet red one too, if that takes your fancy.

    If looks bother you so much, cover it with one of these:

    I have mine behind the display and the drive noise, while audible if I go looking for it (head seeking especially) has never once bothered me during gameplay.

    I'd get a PS3 because free online and Sony will continue to support it for the next few years. If track record is anything to go by Microsoft will drop the 360 shortly after they release the XBOne.

    They already have!

    ... it is purely a third party system now, ever since Gears of War: Judgement came out a shy over seven months ago.

    I think there is a degree of truth in that. However, I think we'll see 3rd parties supporting both the PS3 and 360 for some time. The installed current-gen user base is such that they won't ignore it.

    Based on this valuable discussion in this thread, I've ordered PS3 SS :D
    Thanks for all.
  • Deleted user 16 October 2013 19:23:49
    @dominalien Agreed, my Super Slim has never bothered me, and I am sensitive to noise. My previous 320gb Slim was a lot louder. The fans were always audible, so was the disk drive.

    The Super Slim's fans are near silent, and the disk drive on mine is a constant high speed whirr that you get used to, not the intermittent clunking that can be annoying, and it's nowhere near as loud as the jet engine 360 drive.

    Plus I even prefer the look of it. The normal Slim is fucking horrible, just a bug ugly hunk of plastic, the Super Slim looks much nicer and sleeker.

    To be fair though, Sony bought up half a billion game studios this generation. Otherwise they would not be able to split resources so easily would they. They are equally as next-gen focused on as MS are.

    But, it's strange to conclude that a company would be eager to drop a profitable product, simply because they dropped an unprofitable one in the past

    Just thought i'd throw a little logic and rationality in here

    Ever since I bought a PS3SS, my X360S has been gathering dust (it used to be my primary gaming system). Very happy with the SS!

    Take the plastic bag challenge to cure stupidity.

    That's pretty interesting...

    The intermittent noise from my 320Gb Slim absolutely kills some games for me (largely open world ones, and the new Sly Racoon is constantly accessing the disc for some reason too).

    Reckon it's worth an upgrade? I intend to hang onto the PS3 when I eventually get a PS4 (was my main console this gen, have loads of digital purchases and it's a semi-decent media player), but the 360 is getting the heave-ho.
